Start the day fresh

Today is the weekend! A brand new day. A new day to be present in our lives, to be mindful of how I spend my time (and being organized from the minute I crawl out of bed the night before helps me not waste time), and starting off the day with my best.

With the holidays here, I love to have a breakfast prepared ahead of time!

Since we’re in our new house now, I’m trying to establish a habit of picking up clutter the night before.

Before heading to bed, I take a basket around to each room and pick up anything that is not in its place. Along with that, a duster (have you seen the dust that we get over here in the high desert? sigh). I straighten the pillows, clean off the counter, and I get ready for the next day.

The way you begin your day sets the tone for the rest of the day.

Outer order contributes to inner calm. – Gretchen Rubin

Of course there are days where something is more important than being organized or clutter-free. Believe me, I have those days. But the days that I plan ahead, I feel more energized, ready, and present.

Use leftovers for breakfast casserole

Also in planning for weekend or holiday company, look in the fridge and see what your leftovers are, and do some menu planning.
